Sky Watch: A Tiny Touch Of Blue


Along with most of the country in the United States we have been bracing for days for an Arctic blast of very cold temperatures. The skies have been gray for many days with snowfall off and on and just a rare glance of blue sky. As I type it is 16 degrees outside with a windchill of seven and light flurries but is expected to get more bitterly cold tonight. That's only my little corner of the world. Others will no doubt be colder.
Here's hoping no matter where you are you find a little warmth to fill your day.

Yes, the cold air is on it's way, Carletta. It's very cold here! Well below zero Fahrenheit. BUT the Arctic air also brought sunshine and blue skies. ;-)

Sounds like you are getting the weather we had yesterday. It was all of 5 above a little bit ago. However, the sun is out bright and the sky has been so blue today. Headed for below zero tonight though. If you get out in it, be careful.

That's a great sky! It has much more depth than first meets the eye. Terrific capture.

We have been cold but not as cold as you have had it. Hope it lifts soon. Love your picture.

judi said...

Expressive photo. I now feel guilty at a balmy 39 degrees outside. I wish you warmth of heart and hearth.

This is pretty and comforting, because at first I thought I was looking at my own sky, just stepping out my front door! It's interesting how weather and region affect the skies. (I also live on the E. Coast.)

I think it got up to a whopping high of 4 today!! As I am writing this it is 1 below and falling. Just think we're 1 below right now and Fairbanks, Alaska is 36....now that makes a lot of sense. :)

Dr.John said...

It was 21 below here this morning. That's cold.

ellen b said...

Brrr. What a foreboding weather cast. Hope you stay nice and cozy warm wherever you are :0)
Your sky looks active...

Neal said...

BTW Carletta, I have tagged you .... see my blog for details. :)

Great photo! It's already plummeted to 51 as I comment, and it's supposed to get down near freezing, with a wind chill in the 20's! This is Florida? LOL

Linda said...

That sounds really really cold and those skies look cold - maybe you'll be able to get some really good snow pictures. Stay warm!

Leora said...

Your cloud looks like a little man trying to run away from the cold. Stay warm!

Arija said...

Oh please don't wish me more warmth W are sweltering with temperatures over 100F, a roaring burning wind and no water. Whlie you are getting one extreme, we are getting the other.

Barbara said...

The chilly air make sitting by a nice fire in the fire place very comforting. Enjoy the shot.

Cold? Well, it will probably get down to 60F tonight. The locals think that's cold (it's all relative). What we have is high wind -- in fact the campus is CLOSED tomorrow, classes canceled and all but essential personnel asked to stay home, because of the high wind warning. My lights are flickering ....

Where is global warming when we need it? It is 7 right now, and I live in the south.

It's not that cold any more this week in Belgium. I'm really starting to count the days till spring now!! But the picture is just lovely, and I enjoyed the sepia too. You're right about that one, the coloured one shows off the pretty colours of the toy, thanks for adding it!

maryt/theteach said...

Brrr! It's cold here today, Carletta! I'm glad you're stuck on sepia! :)

Your sky is beautiful and I suspect it came from over WVA. Nice.
